All getting done very slowly. It will all be top draw by the time it is finished (hopefully).

It has been a while since I have fettled the project Monster. MADASL moved to Wales and took my bikes with him, so today I finally went over to work on one of them.

The rear brake hose was replaced with a stealth braided version.

I finally fitted the radiator, without the fan. Once the work was done it was back into the conservatory as a talking piece.

Just the final electrics, fluids and some other bits to finish it off. It might be done for next year!!

Got a custom expansion tank to fit to the back of the radiator between the fins:

The next phase was to sort out the fuel tank for my final (and I do mean final) change.

I really liked the custom graphics that I had on my Super Sport so I decided they would look good on the Monster as well. This time they had to be even more bespoke so off the tank was sent to a sign writer and pinstriper for his custom twist.

Here are the first pictures I have seen of the finished tank:

Can you find the tiny skulls and the tank?

Awesome paintwork!
